Detroit Lions Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay could be one of the biggest NFL names moved this offseason.

Slay, 29, is believed to be on the trading block this offseason. Detroit has reportedly been discussing potential Slay deals with multiple NFL franchises.

It's unclear if the Los Angeles Rams front office has interest in Slay, but one of their star player's certainly does. Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey would like to see the blockbuster move.

A Slay-Ramsey secondary would instantly become one of the most-feared in the NFL. Ramsey tweeted about the possibility over the weekend.

"I'm just throwing that out there," he wrote.

Slay appears to like the idea, too. "That would be so unfair," he responded. "I'm tellin ya!" Ramsey tweeted back.

A trade for Slay is probably pretty unlikely for Los Angeles, though. The Rams have very little cap space and several players hitting free agency. Ramsey is also due a big contract extension.

Still, Los Angeles has made surprise blockbuster moves before, and this would certainly qualify as one. The two star cornerbacks appear to be on board, at least.
